CALL OUT. The team were called out today by Cheshire Police to support a surface search by Cheshire Search and Rescue by checking all the mines at Alderley Edge, Cheshire.
In all, we visited well over 30 mines, shafts, adits and other entrance. DCRO is fortunate to have several members of Derbyshire Caving Club (DCC) amongst our members. DCC maintain and secure access to the Alderley Edge mines on behalf of the landowners (mostly National Trust) and their in-depth knowledge and pre-planning was key to the smooth running of this incident response.
